I thought I had found love. 
I thought I had found my forever. 
I’d never been more wrong in all my life.  

Sadie Westbrook’s seemingly perfect life comes to a screeching halt when she catches her fiancĂ© in bed with another woman. Suddenly, everything she believed in is tested and there’s only one person she can turn to—the guy who has been by her side ever since their best friend’s fell in love and became inseparable.

Ezra Collins—the bassist for the band Willow Creek—has only ever had one weakness, and her name is Sadie. When he receives a frantic call he rushes to her aid, helping to pick up the pieces of her crumbling life—even if that means letting Sadie live with him.

The close proximity tests the limits of their friendship and as the lines between friends and lovers blur they’ll have to decide if falling in love with your best friend is worth the risk of losing them.

4.5 Star Review by Jen Skewes

In Your Heart is the third book in The Willow Creek series.  I love this series.   This series is about the band Willow Creek which is made up of twin brothers, Mathias and Maddox, their foster brother Ezra and their close friends Hayes.  Each book is about a different member of the band and the women that they fall in love with.  In Your Heart is a friends to lovers romance which is one of my favorite stories to read, especially when you have two characters like Ezra and Sadie who are just perfect together.

Ezra and Sadie have been friends for the last 4 or 5 years.  Ever since their best friends started dating and fell in love they found themselves hanging out and becoming the best of friends.  It has been about six months since they have spoken to each other, which was mainly due to Sadie’s ex-fiance Braden, who is a complete douchebag.  But when Sadie’s relationship completely crumbles and she is betrayed in the worst way possible, she turns to Ezra for help.  And Ezra is just that guy that will always be there for her and have her back no matter what.

Sadie spent two years of her life with Braden trying to make him happy but in the process she lost herself along the way.  She now has no where to go so Ezra being the amazing best friend that he is, offers for her to live with him for as long as she needs too.  Sadie has always been attracted to Ezra but he has always been nothing more than her best friend. But now that they are living together things are starting the change.  There is a physical connection between them that they both feel.  But crossing that line could mean risking their friendship.  They both have to decide if that is a risk that they are both willing to take. 

I fell in love with these characters.  I loved Sadie and my heart broke for her in the very beginning.  Her ex was a complete ass who I wanted to throat punch and then when I was done with him I wanted to slap the bitch that he was with.  But I loved the way Sadie handled herself and what I loved even more was how Ezra came to her rescue.  Sadie and Ezra have been best friends for so long and they missed each other.  But Sadie is not the person she was two years ago.  She is just a shell of herself and Ezra wants his best friend back.   I loved Ezra and how much he cared for her.  He is sweet and sexy and just a genuinely good guy.  He took care of her in so many ways.  I wanted them to cross that line, I wanted them to both admit that they loved each other beyond friendship.  I felt the connection between the two of them and just wanted to see them happy, with each other.  They were adorable together even when they were just being best friends.    

I loved this book.  What I love about Micalea’s books is that there isn’t always the unnecessary drama with each story.  They have their problems but it is not off the wall crazy drama.  It is real life drama.  I loved that we still get to see all of the members of Willow Creek in this one.  It’s like catching up with old friends and seeing where they are in their life.   And seeing where they all are just made me happy.  I loved the addition of Arden and cannot wait for her story.

I looked up at the sky and the birds flying above us. “I feel like I don’t know who I am anymore. I spent two years with a guy that stripped me of my identity. I feel like all I have of myself is my store and the rest I’m left questioning. I tried so hard to please him, to make him happy, and in the end I made myself miserable. I was just so desperate for it to work out that I overlooked how toxic our relationship was. How stupid is that?”

“You’re human,” he replied. “We have this inane desire to belong to something that is greater than we are on our own. That desire is so strong that we can fool ourselves into believing things that aren’t true.”

“So, I’m not crazy?” I cracked a smile.

“Definitely not crazy.”

His smile was comforting and I reminded myself for the hundredth time that everything would be okay.

I rested my head on his shoulder and a moment later his head rested on top of mine.

A smile touched my lips.

I’d missed this—having someone that understood me completely, even when I didn’t know myself.
